      Description

      When you click on a node instead of the tree view, it seems like we are triggering auth again in a way that confuses the browser. See the following videos:

      Auth Prompt Workaround

      Use supported versions of Google Chrome or Internet Explorer.

      The Firefox login reminder dialog issue is a known bug in FF (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1386283). The workaround is to just refresh the page after logging in.

      Technical Notes

      To fix this for Firefox, we might consider forcing a refresh of the window after login. Alternatively, perhaps we can somehow change the code that uses push state to stop triggering this issue?
